Winter is here, at last. And so is war.
And we’re not even sure if that’s a good thing for the characters we know and love, but it is an exciting thing for us, the fans – especially after such a long wait.
The trailer, which gives us Daenerys in Dragonstone, the ancestral seat of House Targaryen, a fight between the Unsullied and the Lannisters, Pod and Brienne training, Jaime Lannister on horseback riding across the battefield with a lance, and pretty much every other character I haven’t mentioned preparing for war one way or another, also has a few interesting voice-overs, like Lord Baelish telling Sansa:
“Fight every battle, everywhere, always in your mind.”
And Jon Snow proclaiming, in a speech that could be geared towards the people in the North, or perhaps, towards a new ally?
“For centuries our families fought together against their common enemy. Despite their differences, together. We need to do the same if we’re going to survive because the enemy is real. It’s always been real.”
Like we needed to be even more excited about Season 7.
Check out the new trailer below:
And, of course, because that couldn’t be all – the show also gave fans a chance to unlock the 12 character posters for Season 7 on Twitter, and fans proved they were up to the task. What’s your favorite character poster? I’m going to need all of these ASAP. And the new season. Yes. Less than a month now! We can make it. We’ve made it this far.
Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16 on HBO.
